Florence Eliminated in Quarters of Volcom Fiji Pro

Cloudbreak, FIJI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The world's top ranked surfer, John John Florence, was eliminated from the Volcom Fiji Pro Saturday.

The North Shore native fell to Mick Fanning 16.60-9.10 in the quarterfinals round.

Florence finished the competition in 5th place and never quite got on track, netting a high of 5.0 and uncharacteristically wiping out quickly on an attempted barrel ride with 2:30 remaining in the heat.
